    I'd recommend this hostel is you were looking for an inexpensive place to crash in Rome during your trip. The place is very well maintained, and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. If this is your first trip to Rome, the staff are more than willing to point you in the right direction and help you out. My only quibble with this hostel is the location near the station. There's nothing interesting nearby, but at least you can connect to much of the city via the transport hub at Termini. Once you get out of the neighborhood a bit, there are tons of churches, sites and museums nearby. If you are looking for a more "Italian" experience, I suggest staying in the San Giovanni area or in Testaccio.

    Alessandro palace hostel is in a good location, near more or less 5 minutes from Termini, the central railway station that has direct connection to Vatican. Colosseo is at about 15 minutes walk away. All rooms have their own bathroom with hair dryer but the cleaning is not so good. In the room there are lockers, but you have to bring your own padlock or otherwise you can also buy one directly inside the hostel for 5 euros. There's no fridge to put any food. The hostel has a free wifi, but you have to log in again everytime you use it. Breakfast is included. There is a vast roof top on the fifth floor and it is a great place to meet other travellers, especially in the bar. Staff could be more kind. Anyway it is a good value for money.

    We stayed in this hostel after having toured through almost all major cities of western europe, staying 90% of the time in hostels. Me and 4 friends got there at night, after a long drive and not getting much sleep. We needed to rest.
    You can call it luck but we got a great room only to ourselves (i think it was the 6-bed room) and on the upmost floor, so it was very comfortable to rest.
    The next day was long and filled with walking around, so it really helped to be well located. It's easy to get pretty much anywhere from here.
    At night we met a few people from previous stops at the hostel bar, which is full of young travelers from all over. Drinks and food aren't expensive, but you can bring your own...just be careful if you aren't planning on sharing it 'cause it's always full and people are extra friendly when eating on a budget.
    We had a blast going out with people we met in the hostel, everyone was roughly the same age and sort of had the same vibe, looking to have fun out in the italian summer...I think that's the kind of people alessandro's attracts, so if you're looking for a fun time and not too worried about being in that sort of environment, this is one of the best hostels to stay in europe.

    The hall can not be defined inviting… Well, we can say there's no hall at all. And I don't like people who want to look funny at all costs, and the receptionist did exactly this way… There's no free parking reserved to the guests, but he told us to park in the street without paying if we want, because there's no problems.. but it isn't true! However... The rooms are big, and we could stay up to eight people in the same room, it's perfect if you want to come with a lot of friends and to sleep all together! The location is ok, in a few minutes walk you can reach the Termini railway station, and also the metro station, from where you can get every place in the center.

    Very near at the main station, 5 mins walk. The roof garden was great to meet the other travelers, and the staff are polite

    Clean and close to the train station, so it was easy to get into the heart of Rome but possible to "come home" to parts that seem a little more real.

    This is a pretty typical European hostel, with a few extra amenities that set it apart from the rest.

    The rooms are relatively clean-- you won't be finding bugs or messes (at least not in my experience, or in the experience of anyone I talked to while staying here). There is a bar in the hostel, which makes it really easy to meet people. Bring a bottle of wine and offer it up-- you'll have ten new friends ready to head out into the city with you in no time. They have all kinds of deals on food, including free pizza at certain times of the day/week (I believe this is an effort to foster a fun hostel atmosphere that has gotten them a reputation as one of the top hostels in Europe).

    Despite the reputation, it isn't all rainbows and unicorns. It can be a little noisy at night, especially because the hostel sort-of fosters that kind of atmosphere. The room you get may or may not have air conditioning-- it depends, which isn't something you necessarily want to leave to chance when in the middle of an Italian summer.

    The staff is generally nice and friendly (and they speak a variety of languages), they provide luggage storage for before and after check-in and there are computers for use (You only get 30 minutes free per day, but more than that is pretty cheap).

    All-in-all, I've had two great experiences here, and I would absolutely encourage other young travelers to give it a try. I'd stay here again the next time I head back to Rome.
